Thank you so much for such a detailed trip report! Your words made me want to go book the trip today. I would honestly like to consider a two week vacation in SA next Spring and this just inspires me more. Sadly my husband absolutely hates flying, and he will struggle with flights every few days. I have done zero research on this, tonight was the first night I even googled to 'think' about trying to plan this. Is train travel an option? Sorry if that is a silly question. Obviously I just need to purchase some travel guides to even begin to think about this. Any one in particular that stand out to help with basic, initial, planning thoughts? Thanks!

South Africa is a large country. There are train services between Cape Town and Johannesburg and it is also possible to drive between these two cities as well as Sabi Sand / Kruger.

Arriving into Dusseldorf, thanks to ff points. We will spend a couple of days in Bacharach, then move onto Eguisheim, Dijon, Azay le Rideau, then probably Hautvillers (currently looking for accommodation) then back to Dusseldorf. We will stop into Luxembourg City and/or Cologne on the way back.

Thank-you for new knowledge from your details and reviving my Capetown and Kirkman Kamp memories, a great way to start 2018.
